The Trust programmes are aligned to fulfil and support the framework for an inclusive education system laid out in, the Education White Paper 6: Special Needs Education: Building an Inclusive Education and Training System. The scope of this policy is broad as it attempts to address the diverse needs of all learners who experience barriers to learning.
The Trust acknowledges that all children, youth, and adults have the potential to learn, given the necessary support, and the system’s inability to recognise and accommodate the diverse range of learning needs results in a breakdown of learning. The Trust through the work of its partners, support the National Strategy on Screening, Identification, Assessment and Support (SIAS) which provides guidelines on early identification and support, the determination of nature and level of support required by learners, and identification of the best learning sites for support. Through this strategy the Trust, together with its partners, provides support to parents and teachers in implementing the strategy.
